The creator of Wonder Woman loved women so much that he lived with several at the same time
One of the most mysterious American inventors was born 130 years ago, to whom we owe the lie detector machine and the famous feminist comic book icon, Wonder Woman.
Charles Moulton’s name is not even the real one, since the later psychologist, inventor and writer was originally born as William Moulton Marston on May 9, 1893 in Massachusetts.
She didn’t adopt her writer’s pen name until later, when she began publishing the Wonder Woman series.
Marston studied at Harvard University and received his doctorate in psychology in 1921. He was considered a child prodigy, so he was accepted into the Phi Kappa Beta society, which recruits the best students from elite American universities.
This nearly 250-year-old university fraternitas – which outwardly operates according to rites similar to Masonic lodges – is famous for having no less than 17 US presidents and 140 Nobel laureates among its members, including people known today as
Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger or even Francis Ford Coppola.
After graduating from Harvard, Marston taught psychology at various top universities, including Tufts University and the University of London.
In addition to his scientific work, he was also successful as an inventor. His patents include the earliest version of a polygraph machine, which checked the testee’s truthfulness by measuring blood pressure and pulse.
The scientist was also a forerunner of today’s radical feminism. He believed that women were superior to men in many ways and believed that women would rise up to lead the world into a new, peaceful era.
He himself tried to enjoy the company of as many women as possible, that’s why
he also actively practiced polygamy.
One of Marston’s long-term partners was the niece of birth control pioneer Margaret Sanger.
She was inspired by feminism and her passionate interest in Greek mythology
to create Wonder Woman, who first appeared in 1941.
The early Wonder Woman comics were based on the screenplays by Charles Moulton under the pseudonym Charles Moulton, and the drawings were done by artist Harry G. Peter for DC Comics.
He also created Wonder Woman’s most famous accessories, including the Lasso of Truth and bulletproof bracelets.
The feminist icon has been one of DC’s most recognizable characters for more than 80 years. Today, Wonder Woman has become a symbol of the LGBT movement, which is in line with the intention of her dreamer, who died in 1947.
Marston’s figure, modeled after the Greek goddess Diana, was originally considered bisexual, but after his death, DC hid this character trait for a long time so that the series could spread as widely as possible.
As we reported, not all stars are happy with the sensitization that has characterized Hollywood lately, Richard Dreyfuss, for example, is totally freaked out .
